    WHILE Khabib Nurmagomedov awaits the result of the investigation of the Nevada State Athletic Commission on the post-fight brawl in UFC 229 against Conor McGregor, the Russian champion faces a more severe punishment from his father.

    Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov said on Russian television station RenTV that he was disappointed to see his son set off a fight with men from McGregor's camp at ringside with women nearby.

    Khabib stopped McGregor with a rear-naked choke in the fourth round, then climbed over the cage and chased a cornerman of the Irish brawler.

    “I will be very hard on this. I warned him,” Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov said in Russian.

    “For me, discipline comes first.”
